Alumni Ryan Willoughby

Ryan Willoughby ‘08

“The department prepared me in more ways than I can actively remember. The most notable ways it prepared me was in requiring me to hone my public speaking skills, to learn how to thoroughly research topics, and to share what I learned in a clear and consistent manner.”

Now, Ryan is the Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity in Georgia

“I work for the 65 Habitat for Humanity affiliates that operate in the state of Georgia and who serve approximately 300+ families each year with affordable housing solutions.  I am responsible for fundraising, training, advocating, and providing disaster preparedness for those affiliates.  At any given time, I am arranging multiple training events, administering a few grants, and engaging in advocacy efforts on a state and national level on behalf of Habitat’s mission.”
